94.9 WDKB and T-Mobile are partnering to recognize our Hometown Heroes! Each week, we will highlight First-Responders, Nurses, Teachers, Good Samaritans, and more for all they do in the places they live and work in DeKalb County & Northern Illinois. Our Hometown Hero this week is:

Angela Frye, Stephanie Hill, and Kari Harold 

Huntley Middle School Nurses

Thanks to Reagan from DeKalb for Nominating Kari, Angela, and Stephanie. She wrote:

These three ladies have had a lot to juggle this school year between all of their daily duties and Covid. They have stayed many hours after school to finish their work to make sure they are ready for their students each and every day!”


Nominate someone that you believe is helping to make DeKalb County a better place and they could be featured as our next Hometown Hero!
